Firefighters come to the rescue of a pup — in peril.

The calls came into 9-1-1 on Thursday about a small black dog in the middle of Lake Tapps. She’d fallen through the ice at least twice.

Coming to the rescue? East Pierce Fire and Rescue.

“C’mon, c’mon,” a firefighter can be heard on video posted by the agency.

Rescuers in dry suits used ropes, body boards and coaxing to get the dog safely in their arms.

The dog — a young female Shar Pai mix is in a shelter until she can be reunited with her owner.
